Dubai International Airport said on Sunday it was operating as normal following a news report Yemen's armed Houthi militia had launched a drone attack against the airport.

"With regards to reports by questionable sources this morning, Dubai Airports can confirm that Dubai International (DXB) is operating as normal without any interruption," said an airport spokesman.

The statement was also carried by the Dubai Media Office on Twitter.


The Houthi's Masirah TV earlier said, without providing evidence, a Sammad-3 drone had launched a drone attack on the airport.
